Gayane* is seventeen years old. A few months ago, she knocked at the door of FAR’s Homeless Children Center seeking help. For several years, she has withstood being abuse by family members. One day, she decided to change her life.
She gathered her courage and left her house without letting anyone know about her plans. She had nothing to lose and as she saw it, things could only get better for her.
And she was right. She found shelter at the Homeless Children Center, and after a few weeks, she confided to the center’s psychologist that the Center helped her to feel like a respectable adult with a future full of possibilities.
